CATSKILL — The former Catskill Game Farm, a beloved blast from Catskill’s past that attracted visitors from all over the world, sold last week for just under $2 million.

The 150-acre site was home to more than 2,000 animals, including the celebrated April the giraffe, from 1933 until the business closed permanently on Columbus Day, Oct. 9, 2006, after 73 years of operation.

Ben and Cathy Ballone purchased the former Catskill Game Farm property in 2012. They offered self-guided tours, camping and transformed the former giraffe house into a luxurious inn.
